Samsung phone camera not focusing

Hi,
I got a Samsung Galaxy A40 a few months ago as an upgrade. It was all working fine until about 2 weeks ago I noticed I couldn't get the camera to focus. I searched online and found info that said try updating all apps and clearing caches, so did that but but still all pictures are blurry and the camera won't focus, it has also affected Snapchat and other photo taking apps. Any ideas?

Camera modules can fail, need to take it up with the retailer.

Could well be a problem alright, but had an S8 a while back that had a similar problem. Didn't use the camera at all really, but whenever i needed it, the camera couldn't focus at all even though was fine for the first year I had it.

Giving the phone a good oul shake was the fix believe it or not.
